Yes . right


either 0 or 1 it needs to have some value more than 1 times


Select count(*)
from mstm1

where

  (case when act is null then 0 else 1 end +
 case when act01  is null then 0 else 1 end +
 case when act14 is null then 0 else 1 end +
 case when act58 is null then 0 else 1 end +
 case when act914 is null then 0 else 1 end ) > 1

Do you mean to say sum of act files is greater than 1 or
either 0 or 1 it needs to have some value more than 1 times


for
sum of act files is greater than 1
Try this
Select count(*) from mstm1

where  sum (act + act01 + act14 + act58 + act914) > 1

SUM() cannot be used here, as we need to check the data row-wise.
also, SUM() could not be in the WHERE clause, only in HAVING clause.

so, you need to check like this:
Select count(*) 
from mstm1
where  isnull(act,0) + isnull(act01,0) + isnull(act14,0) + isnull(act58,0) + isnull(act914,0) > 1 

Open in new window

at least, for a "one-off" query. if you need to do this regularly, I would recommend you implement a computed field with that expression, eventually indexed so it would be maintained all the time automatically, and query that field
